The southeastern United States has one of the richest records of
early human settlement of any area of North America. This book
provides the first state-by-state summary of Paleoindian and Early
Archaic research from the region, together with an appraisal of
models developed to interpret the data. It summarizes what we know
of the peoples who lived in the Southeast more than 8,000 years
ago--when giant ice sheets covered the northern part of the
continent, and such mammals as elephants, saber-toothed tigers, and
ground sloths roamed the landscape. Extensively illustrated, this
benchmark collection of essays on the state of Paleoindian and
Early Archaic research in the Southeast will guide future studies
on the subject of the region's first inhabitants for years to
